  • Barbara, good afternoon,
    It's a beautiful day in the Lord!!!

    I am Martha Hafner of Vermont.  I've been praying daily since I was about 6.  For about the past 3 months I've been on the Tuesday Governor's Prayer Team.  What a joy!
    Vermont has the dubious distinction of being one of the least evangelical and the most illicit drug users in the nation.  I believe in God's transformational grace.  I also believe in unity in the body of Christ and teaming together to make Ezekiel's dry bones revive and have new life with new wine skins.  
    As a teacher of 30+ years, I've long seen the brains of our youth as our most precious natural resource.  I now add - TO PROTECT.  For the past 3 years I've been attempting to lobby against the menace of marijuana.  The church has been asleep - not only on this concern, but also physician assisted suicide, and gay marriages.  Praise God the Vermont churches will rally on abortion concerns.  Today, our young people need this protection force, too.  
    The effects of today's high potency marijuana is harmful and the kids are making sport of seizing (having seizures.)  It doesn't just create shock waves in their bodies - the ripple effects mean - more drugs, crime, suicides, deaths, homelessness, psychotic breaks & mental illness, erosion of family, hospital and community finances.  It even destroys wildlife, pollutes our rivers & lands.   
    That's why the Surgeon General Jerome Adams and other national leaders unanimously voted to oppose marijuana legalization and commercialization just before Covid took the stage in a gathering in Tampa.     
     
    Smokescreen is a recently released video. It has great visual effects, expert & eyewitness testimonies and does a great overview of marijuana concerns that every state leader - church, educational, community & state government, and business leaders should be made aware.  Please watch Smokescreen or at least read the brief notations about it's different sections found in the one page attachment.  Then, please share it with others.  Our children need our protection.  
    Please join me in praying for Vermont.  The Vermont church still slumbers.  S54, the marijuana commercialization bill, has been picked up again and has plenty of votes to fast track it by legislators who are only listening to marijuana industry leaders while the voices of doctors, law enforcement and lobbyists are ignored.  S54 will bring pot shops across the street from our schools.  The vote will happen soon - perhaps before Labor Day.  
    PRAYER: Father, protect the brains of our youth.  We don't need more THC dabs to turn out the lights off on our y

    Subject: Emergency NV fire-from Barbara
    To:

    Just left a press conference where Governor Brian Sandoval called people all over the country to pray. A fire started at 2:00 am and is burning west of Reno. Twenty homes have been destroyed and 1 death.Winds are at 60 miles per hour and it can not be fought by air at this time yet. Some prayer has been
    going on since 2:00 am. I lost power for a while but it is back on.

    Someone from Lake Tahoe called me and reported there was a 3. plus quake which has not been reported on the news yet. When I drove through Steamboat I thought it was smoke and could hardly see, but itwas steam coming out of the ground being blown north for a few miles. I have never seen that much
    in this area. I could hardly walk with the wind. Thought I was going to be blown into a car.

    I advised Governor Sandoval that we have a lot of prayer going and told him about the steam and quake report. Also I thanked him for that call to prayer and he thanked us for the prayer.

    It seems better at the moment, no unordinary steam this time but we are still far from being clear.

    Please keep Reno area in prayer. It has made the national radio and may be on national TV tonight.

    May the Lord bless you and keep you all safe.

    Barbara Jones
